New to Forum

Hi Forum, I have relocated with my work to Basel for more than 6 months. I come from South Africa where I have spent 11 years. The beginning was a bit daunting with finding a house and finding my way around as my german was not great in the beginning. I would like to meet other expats in Basel and make some friends. Although I am bit of a quiet nature I like outdoors, hiking, going to concerts and shows, cooking and eating out.
